His Excellency Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo hosted a rehearsal at St. Peter’s Chaldean Catholic Church yesterday evening in preparation for the priestly ordinations of Deacon David Stephen and Deacon Royal Hannosh. Roughly about 175 people were in attendance, all who would be serving today’s event. Rehearsing the melodies and the hymns, His Excellency as well as Fr. Andrew Younan, performed these beautiful prayers while guiding the two soon to be priests.
The evening was concluded with a Eucharistic adoration, including a beautiful reflection from none other than Fr. Michael Bazzi. As all prayers were being offered for Deacon David and Deacon Royal as they begin their wonderful journey, Fr. Michael briefly reflected on entering priesthood and its lifelong expedition. St. Peter Cathedral will be hosting the priestly ordinations of Deacon David and Deacon Royal today, August 14th at 6pm. Please join us in this blessing from God as these two young men begin their priesthood. Below are the times of each of their first scheduled Holy Mass.
